Sterling Inn and Spa

There is a nondescript two story gray building a block off Victoria Avenue on Magdalen Street, nondescript except for the giant milk bottle shaped entranceimg_1504

In a former life this was a creamery and later a nightclub. Now it has been renovated into the Sterling Inn and Spa a 41 room boutique hotel and the Ag restaurant.

Walking through the milk bottle you enter a small lobby. The front desk is to the right as you walk through the door. Check in was quick and easy and we were in our room in no time.

Each of the 41 rooms has a unique layout with King size bed, fireplace. The bathrooms have either a large steam shower with a rain shower head and body jets or a jacuzzi for two. We had a room on the second floor with a Steam shower and gas fireplace. The only problem I had with the room was ,as I remarked to my wife, it was too comfortable which made it hard to leave and go out sightseeing.


The room rate includes daily breakfast. If you are picturing the usual hotel breakfast in a small crowded room with a small buffet setup, wipe that thought out of your mind. As their website puts it you get breakfast in bed. You put the card out the night before and let them know what time you would like breakfast and it shows up at your room within the time window you chose. You get a croissant with butter and jam, hard boiled egg, yogurt with granola, an apple or orange, orange juice anIMG_1518d tea or coffee. Now it’s not a huge plate of bacon and eggs which some people would prefer but it is delicious and surprisingly filling. You can eat it in bed if you want but if you do be forewarned the croissants may leave you with lots of crumbs in the bed.

I would highly recommend you consider the Sterling as an option if you are visiting  Niagara Falls Canada. The hotel is best for couples or perhaps a solo traveler. If you are traveling with kids this might not be the best choice for you as there is no pool to take them to if they want to go swimming.

Finally I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention the Spa at Sterling Inn and their restaurant AG. W e did not avail ourself of the Spa while we were there but you can find information about there services on their website ( AG is a farm to table restaurant with a menu which changes with the seasons. My wife and I enjoyed a delicious meal there the night of our arrival. Even if you are not staying at the Sterling Inn its worth it to dine at AG.

A word of advice, while the room rates through the hotel are reasonable you may be able to find better rates by searching the internet.
